    Hello. I am a long time player of Terraria Desktop, and I have much experience with it. I would love to be added as an editor so I can help update the wiki with new and changed items and features from the 1.4 update. I have already been working on updating the upcoming features with new information, and I would be glad to continue to quickly bring out accurate update information.

    Request to be added

    Hi, I'd like to be added to the editors list. I've been helping around the wiki recently creating item pages, copyediting, and reporting vandalism. I play Desktop and have basic familiarity with the source code, so I can pull up information about item functionality, vendor sales, etc without too much trouble. On the wikicode side, I've learned how to use a good number of the standard templates+infoboxes and I'm hoping to pick up more through practice. You can check my contributions page to see where I've helped out, or contact me in the Discord under the same username. Cheers! Breathlessblizzard (talk) 22:38, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

    Hello! I'd like to be added to the editors list. I mostly play mobile, but can readily test pretty much anything on the Console version (latest version, Xbox One), and will sometimes be able to test some Desktop things. I'll hopefully be able to be editing a lot more actively, and am currently working to achieve consistency, especially with the flood of 1.4 articles.

    Hi! I'd like to be added to the editor's list. I have (what I'd like to think) an extensive knowledge of most Terraria Desktop version mechanics, as well as features and content. I've joined pretty recently in order to help with 1.4 content additions, and I helped to start adding happiness quotes for the happiness quotes project to most NPCs, as well as preparing to start the DPS project (to find the average DPS of weapons).

    Hello, my name is Trialsphere, I am constant player of the game and have over 340 hours on Nintendo Switch. I know the game mechanics well, tend to recognize glitches fairly quickly when they pop up, and know most of the tips or tricks a player might need. I would love to be added as an editor so I can help add information that might have been missed on pages and help the terraria community as much as I can. I thank you for your time and consideration.

    Request to be added

    I would like to be added to the editor's list. I have a switch so I can make contributions to the wiki based on switch related info, and I have good hours to check what needs to be done. Also, one more thing I have to say is that I visit pages often to see what needs to be updated or to see if anyone has vandalized it, and report it or change it. Otherwise I just want to help keep the wiki running smoothly. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Triplefun1 (talkcontribs) at 19:32, 19 May 2022 (UTC)

    Request to be added

    Hello, I'd like to be added to the editor's list. I have recently added content for the 1.4 update during its release on the old Fandom Wiki, and now have been adding info to wiki pages for 1.4.4. I have extensive knowledge of the game, been playing for the better part of 8 years, starting on Xbox 360 and now own the game on 4 platforms. I mainly edit pages with discoveries I make during gameplay. I'd love to help growing the wiki to make it more informative to newer and experienced players. Love to hear back!

    Requesting Wiki Change - Front Page

    Add “Update History” to front page.

    Request to be added

    Hey, SonicCee here, recently I've been using the wiki a lot because I found my old 3DS, you can guess what game I played first. So as the most likely soul Terraria 3DS player I'd be happy to report glitches and such and edit some 3DS articles... ... you know, if you let me to

    "Old phone versions only" mark

    If there's "Old-Gen console only" and just "Console only" marks, how about "Old phone versions only"? By "old versions" I mean versions with exlusive mobs, bosses and items, because just like old-gen consoles versions, old mobile versions had a lot of unique content, and just like there's a big step between old and new Gen consoles, there's a bug step between old and new mobile versions.

    Does mobile not update automatically? Why would they be in the old content versions? --AmsterAlt (talk) 18:46, 6 January 2022 (UTC)

    Speaking of this, due to parity between PC, console, mobile, and Switch (DCMS) (also, finally), there should be in my opinion a marking for all three of these, just to reduce clutter. I think that it would be important to keep the ones we have just in case of differences between the versions, but I just find lists of 3 different versions to be quite the eyesore. Potentially a "Modern" icon can be used, although I do not have any ideas as to what the image would be. Perhaps a cog to signify that it is still being worked on (even if at this point it is minor updates). I know this point has been driven into the ground, but I figured I'd suggest an icon.

    Adding 'special seeds' to front page

    In the list on the front page of mechanics, it doesn't mention secret world seeds anywhere. But we have a nice hub for them, an infobox, and they're pretty cool. It might be worth adding to one of the areas on the front page. Mathbrush1 (talk) 20:58, 14 March 2022 (UTC)

    This really should be done now that in 1.4.4 one of the Achievements is for visiting a Secret Seed. Russ Guss Doodles (talk) 16:52, 2 October 2022 (UTC)

    Couple of issues

    First off, I'm not sure why on mobile there's a bit of an overflow on the right side of the site, but whatever it is it does make scrolling a bit difficult. See here.

    Second, I'm not sure why you dragged the formerly unofficial Spanish wiki here. There is a lot of reminiscence of Fandom there, and I don't know if that is the whole plan here.

    In any case, congratulations! -- PanchamBro (talkcontributions) 07:14, 15 March 2022 (UTC)

    The pet Companion Cube behaviour is also a reference to a GMod addon.

    Recently (like, right now) I watched a video of Endy about Garry's Mod Iceberg (the second one he made) and he talks about an addon for GMod that adds a "Perfectly Harmless Compaion Cube". Basicaly it's an Angel statue from Doctor Who, or that SCP that is realy famous : if you don't look at him he teleports, if he's too close while in that state of moving he'll oneshot you by "stabbing you with a knife". (as in play Counter Strike, because you are not facing him the Knife Cut with Right Click one shots) I even have creepy sounds when it enters moving mode, similar to how Companion Cube behaves in Lava in Terraria !

    I think ReLogic made a reference to that specific addon for the secret interraction in the dark, as in Terraria, unlike an FPS, as long as there is light you can always see the Cube, so to reference the not seeing it had to be in full darkness.

    The Steam Workshop of this addon is from March 19, 2013 tho note that there was other ways to share addons for GMod before the workshop was implemented, just saw the video but I think it would be neat to add that part of the reference wich fits soooooo perfectly with Terraria's Cube behaviour that it deserves to be included ! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Néthéris (talkcontribs) at 09:00, 10 April 2022 (UTC)

    Time to make different themes from TCF?

    Are the themes ready yet? Blazerun19 (talk) 23:49, 4 May 2022 (UTC)

    Please have a little patience. Westgrass already explained that this is no easy task. The entire styling codebase was tailored to the layout on Gamepedia/Fandom, so it requires a lot of effort to rework it. You can be sure that as soon as the option to switch to another theme is available, you'll be made aware of it. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 16:31, 5 May 2022 (UTC)
    I am a volunteer on Wiki. In real life, the company I worked for went out of business under the brunt of COVID. So it's tough for me right now. I need to spend more time and energy on making a life and/or job hunting. Therefore I have less time for wiki work, although theming project is progressing steadily. But it is a big project, I need to clean up all the css and re-reorganize them to fit the theming mechanism. So far, wiki interface has became fully responsive, and the theme switching mechanism itself is in place. Now I'm focus on cleaning up all css and make them into two different theme skins (Overworld and Hydra) to test theming system and make sure it works fine. The theming system will be released after this work is completed, and other more skins will continue to be developed after then. -- Westgrass (talk) 06:00, 6 May 2022 (UTC)

    Switch version

    Now that Nintendo Switch version Switch is all caught up to Xbox/PS, and DR is doing simultaneous content update releases, is there any reason to keep the Switch version differentiation in {{exclusive}} around? Or can it be disabled? --Eraloiz (talk) 09:14, 10 May 2022 (UTC)

    I know this would be hard work but perhaps merge them into a duel icon? Triplefun1 (talk) 16:07, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
    That's great news for our icon problem, I'm ok to merge it with the Console icon. I guess a temporary site banner (2 weeks / 1 month-long?) might be a good idea to inform the community of that change. Dinoxel (talk) 16:27, 13 June 2022 (UTC)
    Actually, "Console version" used to encompass the Switch entirely. This is even still stated on Terraria#Console version, which apparently hasn't been updated for quite some time: "On this wiki, the Xbox One Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch Nintendo Switch editions are referred to as the "Console version" and will be marked with Console version." So if we can be sure that Switch receives updates together with the others (can we? @Eraloiz you mentioned simultaneous releases and judging by the last two updates that's true, but is there maybe an official statement?), then I don't see a problem with going back to that and simply removing Switch from {{exclusive}}. A sitenotice might be a good idea; perhaps we can combine that with the potential tModLoader changes. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 22:37, 20 June 2022 (UTC)

    Version markings/denotations and the overall crowded feeling of icons as a whole.

    As one reads through the wiki, you may see several icons denoting platform-exclusive items. Seeing 4 platform icons next to each other is quite awkward and feels somewhat redundant to list all four. It would make more sense just to have 3 icons total—one for the Windows phone, one for Legacy editions, and one for DCMS, or Desktop-console-mobile-switch. This could be pulled off as there are no truly exclusive items between any of the DCMS platforms that could become problematic. As rarely will one find mention of Mods, lighting, or TShock in a vast majority of articles. It would perfect sense to add an icon to denote DCMS content rather than listing all four as individuals. When as we know, they will become one platform after the LOL Update, also known as the Labor of love. Perhaps this may warrant phrasing akin to the Bedrock edition as seen in Minecraft. It would be nice to see one dedicated icon for DCMS and one could hope that a Discussion may be brought to the attention of whoever may be charged with the creation of platform icons.

    Have a wonderful day Sallardon (talk) 02:27, 12 June 2022 (UTC)

    Hi, thanks for sharing your thought about this. We are already aware of the icons flood problem as it's been there for a couple of years now. It is planned to have only three icons on the wiki, one for DCMS, one for Old-gen Console, and one for 3DS. And probably an additional fourth one for the tModLoader version as it isn't developed by Re-Logic and won't profit from the Labor of Love update. However, as you mentioned, the DCMS versions don't share the same version yet, so DCMS icons are necessary at the moment. Dinoxel (talk) 16:14, 13 June 2022 (UTC)
    I completely agree; think something should be done about this. Maybe make PC (or DCMS) version a priority, and give the rest their own subsections, idk. Also, in some crafting recipes, where current and outdated content is grouped, this can cause confusion, especially for beginners Terrakota (talk) 17:18, 15 June 2022 (UTC)

    TModLoader Items (+ eicon replacement)

    TModLoader adds a few extra items, such as the April Fools Joke, the Starting Bag, 1 developer vanity, and 10 patreon vanity sets. My question is; Should we document (i.e. make pages for) these items, instead of just putting it on the TModLoader page? The old tmodloader eicon/exclusive indicator has been replaced with a Legacy TModLoader icon, so I can't do much on my own, and that's why i've come here to ask for some opinions on if we should make pages for these or not.

    Another question to consider is if we should document the various Unloaded Items/Unloaded Tiles, as those are more dubious and less common to come by than these actual items. Adr451 (talk) 20:18, 12 July 2022 (UTC)

    To my mind, we shouldn't document any of tModLoader's own alterations to the game outside of its article. This wiki is still primarily about vanilla Terraria; third-party content usually has its own documentation somewhere else, e.g. on the mods wiki or a separate wiki. In the case of tModLoader, that would be the official wiki on GitHub. The only reason tModLoader is even (for now) part of the {{exclusive}} system here, if I remember correctly, is the considerable size of its playerbase and that it actually constitutes vanilla Terraria in large parts. In my view, the content about the rest, the non-vanilla parts, should be kept as brief as possible here and instead be documented in detail at the more appropriate location, the tModLoader wiki.
    In short: In my opinion no extra pages for TML items, rather mention them on tModLoader (at most; if necessary). They're third-party content, so they belong on their third-party wiki. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 00:09, 13 July 2022 (UTC)

    Concern with Shimmer being Included as a Crafting Station

    Shimmer is in a kind of weird space where it’s used to make new items but doesn’t use the crafting menu. It definitely needs to being included alongside normal crafting recipes but I worry that just having it labeled as ShimmerShimmer could be confusing. It implies that it works like other liquid crafting recipes where you stand next to the liquid and then open the crafting menu. That’s why I think in wiki crafting tables it should instead be labeled as ShimmerShimmer Transmutation and directly links to the part of the Shimmer Article that explains how transmutations works. I would do this myself but I’m kinda new to contributing to the Wiki and was wondering what more long term contributors thought of the idea.

    Russ Guss Doodles (talk) 7:48, 2 October 2022 (UTC)

    ShimmerShimmer Transmutation can be used as the crafting station label I think. BadPiggy1024 (talk) 08:43, 2 October 2022 (UTC)
    This could work, but it would require quite literally- replacing every 'Shimmer' tag in recipes/shimmer/register with 'Shimmer Transmutation', and I'm not sure what that would take. Additionally, I'm also not sure how to make a redirect (wiki/Shimmer_Transmutation) redirect to a specific section in an article, so I'll have to figure that out as well.

    Adding Missing biomes to the Main Page

    The Marble CaveMarble Cave, Granite CaveGranite Cave, GraveyardGraveyard, Meteorite biomeMeteor, and Spider CaveSpider Nest are all biomes listed in the Bestiary but are not on the front page of the wiki. It makes sense for biomes listed in the Bestiary like the Hallowed Desert not to be included because it’s a version of the Desert and Hallow but all the biomes above are unique and distinct in the game.

    The Aether should also be included even though it’s not in the Bestiary because it has it’s own unique soundtrack, unique NPC’s, and is hard for new players to discover without the wiki. For an icon it can have the Bestiary Rank Light.png star from the bestiary or a lavender colored Ocean Ocean icon to look like a drop of Shimmer. DaggariDagger (talk) 18:46, 11 October 2022 (UTC)

    Legendary mode and Enemies' info table update

    Since Legendary Mode has been recenly officially added to the game can somebody please add Legendary Mode Mob's statistic (Since I don't know how to do this, and which bunny picture is best to describe Legendary Mode). Also I would like that Journey Mode Mob statistics will be added to the Mob's Statistics Table (Not as necessary as Legendary Mode's). It would really help in terms of preparation to boss fights in those difficulties (For example knowing which attacks should you dodge, or you can ignore to have a better chance of dodging more damaging attacks).

    Fixed Terrarian (talk) 17:46, 23 October 2022 (UTC)
    Hi, "Legendary Mode" is simply a For the worthy (or Get fixed boi) world that is in Master Mode – it is not a new difficulty, but simply a new name for an existing combination. For the worthy has its own stat increases for all enemies (in all three of its modes: "Expert", "Master", and "Legendary"), but these changes are not displayed in every enemy's infobox. That is because For the worthy is a secret world seed; content from these seeds is mentioned in article text at best, but generally stated in detail only on the seed's page. Including stat numbers for all three For the worthy values would not be feasible with our current infobox layout, because there's simply not enough space. Moreover, secret world seeds are a much less prominent feature than Expert and Master Modes.
    For the worthy's stat increases do not really change your preparation all that much. The attacks that deal a lot of damage in normal worlds deal likely lethal damage in For the worthy, and the attacks that deal little damage in normal worlds deal substantial damage in For the worthy. If the concrete numbers are of importance to you, then you can calculate them very easily by multiplying the respective normal world Classic/Expert/Master value by the factor that is mentioned in For the worthy's article.

    Spawn Rates for mobs?

    What if we started putting spawn rates for mobs in infoboxes? The stuff that makes a crimson mimic rarer than a ichor sticker. It would be hard to fit in for common mobs, who spawn in a bunch of biomes, but maybe we could put an "advanced" dropdown more more technical features of mobs, and the mob ID could be moved there. Like the Bloons wiki's popology section that appears in some infoboxes (like this page) if we did go through with it, it would require a lot of datamining, and would take a long time to complete. but I think it would significantly improve the wiki. - TheFlamingX 15:38, 7 November 2022 (UTC)

    I feel like that might be a little unnecessary to add. Cytra (talk) 15:51, 7 November 2022 (UTC)
    Unfortunately, spawn rates are a very complex topic. It is virtually impossible (with very few exceptions) to compute a single number that represents the chance of an NPC spawning in any given tick. This is because there's a myriad of factors at play that influence spawn rates, some of which are outlined in the NPC spawning article (e.g. section "Choosing a type of enemy to spawn"). It mentions "tile the enemy spawns on", for example – this means that the Ichor Sticker's spawn rate might change depending on whether you have, say, 354 blocks or 355 blocks of Crimstone around you (you can see this in-game with a tool like the "spawn checker" from the Modder's Toolkit). This demonstrates that the way randomness is implemented in Terraria makes it very difficult to document it. Take tree shaking as another example: In and of itself a simple mechanic with a comparably straightforward code, but putting it on the wiki requires this huge table with so much differentiation (e.g. a Dragon Fruit has six different chances, depending on the circumstances). While it sure would be informative to have detailed spawn chances for NPCs, I'm afraid there's currently no feasible solution for that. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 16:04, 8 November 2022 (UTC)

    Hello i've been going through the wiki and have found that in the blocks section under found blocks hive blocks are listed as non craftable but they're also listed under craftable blocks so i am proposing to change that because with the introduction of shimmer hive blocks are now craftable and the found blocks category i assume has yet to be updated.

    Removing the Legacy tModLoader version

    When the default version of tModLoader changed to 1.4 earlier this year, we had a discussion at Talk:tModLoader about its future in the wiki's version differentiation system. There were no objections to the plan to remove the "1.3 Legacy tModLoader version" from the system once 90% of the active, most popular mods have been ported to 1.4 but no later than December 25, 2022. This date is now fast approaching (and the number of ported popular mods is still at around 76%). However, we have to consider that there will initially be a lot of invalid {{eicons}} and {{eversions}} transclusions in the days following the removal. At the same time, that time of year – the week(s) after Christmas – is traditionally one with high numbers of readers/edits (presumably because people receive Terraria and/or a game console for it as Christmas gifts). Therefore, to avoid having red errors all over the wiki during a busy time, I propose to bring the removal of the Legacy tModLoader version forward to December 15. This should give us enough time to sort out the template errors before Christmas. Thoughts/objections? --Rye Greenwood (talk) 20:53, 4 December 2022 (UTC)

    I'm ok with it. Dinoxel (talk) 21:35, 4 December 2022 (UTC)
    It's fine. --Westgrass (talk) 03:26, 5 December 2022 (UTC)
    That's also fine with me. --Eraloiz (talk) 12:40, 8 December 2022 (UTC)

    Edits from the old wiki

    I had a good amount of edits back from the old wiki, but it seems my login from there isn't good here. Is there a way I can get my edits back? — Preceding unsigned comment added by TheAilingSword (talkcontribs) at 00:53, 21 December 2022 (UTC)

    Yes, you can carry over your username and edits from the Fandom wiki. See Terraria Wiki:Reclaim your account for an explanation of the process. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 01:15, 22 December 2022 (UTC)

    Update pages and item history sections don't match

    I've noticed that with the lucky horseshoe giving luck when 1.4.4's page didn't show that, and I've noticed that with the Golden key and 1.1, where the history section says "Desktop 1.1: Increased chance of getting Golden Keys from Dungeon enemies (1/75 to 1/65) and from Pots (1/45 to 1/40).", but when I look in the 1.1 page I use the search page function and find nothing about that, and I'm sure it's present on many more pages.

    Version tabs

    When I am reading the wiki I see a lot of places where the text references old gen, 3ds, or previous editions. It would probably be a challenging conversion, but I feel that the wiki would be a lot easier to navigate and use if you could opt to select the version you are using and only receive information about that edition. That way, you don't have to read through all of the outdated and irrelevant information. I noticed this would be useful in particular with the achievements list page. The list is extremely long, but that is in part because the old gen and 3ds versions all have their own artwork for most of the achievements and they often have completely separate achievements. That makes browsing the list a pain, and it made me wonder: Why even bother putting the old stuff in? The answer is, of course, because you can still play those versions. So my solution is clear: Separate the game versions so you only have to see what you need. Unless you want everything...

    Programming wise, it might be possible to simply identify some paragraphs, sections, and pages as one edition, and simply not show them if you aren't in that tab.

    Interface wise, there could be a tab at the top of a page listing the editions that you can select, like the difficulty tabs, to filter out the info you don't need. Ideally, this would carry on between pages, so you don't have to re-select it every time you change page. (I have the same problem with the difficulty tabs...)

    Tipsy / Toilet Fishing

    Also, I was reading through the fishing page and saw that the tipsy buff and sitting atop a toilet both increase your fishing power by 5. I have never tried either of these things, and so I can't confirm them, so I wanted to ask here. I do this because neither the tipsy page nor the toilet page mention this fishing power increase. Clearly either the fishing page is inaccurate or the other two pages are missing info.

    something i noticed on the title screen

    so on my ps4 i was on the main menu aka the title screen. i was watching youtube when i looked back i saw the screen had the void monolith effect as well as it was night. i couldn't get a picture due to my device limitations. any ideas why it happened easter egg? glitch? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Someguyhelping (talkcontribs)

    When leaving a world while a monolith/event is in effect the title screen will keep that effect. Cytra (talk) 16:07, 17 January 2023 (UTC)
    ah ok thanks for letting me know Someguyhelping (talk) 14:14, 23 January 2023 (UTC)

    The "snow biome"

    Hi, SonicCee here. I'd love it if we could come together as a community and come up with a better name for the snow biome, ya know, cause snow biome is a TERRIBLE name... NO BIOME SHOULD INCLUDE THE WORD BIOME IN THE NAME, WHY DOES IT!!! -Sincerely Sonic C. Games — Preceding unsigned comment added by SonicCee (talkcontribs)

    It's a biome primarily made of snow, what more do you want? The Snow biome's name is perfectly fine as is. Also please include your signature as per wiki rules by using ~~~~ Cytra (talk) 16:15, 17 January 2023 (UTC)
    It’s also basically the biomes official name since that’s what it’s called in the Bestiary. I agree that it sounds kinda dumb (calling it the Tundra would be much better) but you can’t really argue with an official name. Russ Guss Doodles (talk) 03:18, 19 January 2023 (UTC)

    a few things that could be added as misc pages (i forgor how to make them)

    well the only thing i can think of rn is a page for on startup/bootup, aka when you start up the game. reason for this is they added a new splash screen for the underworld since they added a tree for it. but then again thats probably all it'd be used for so uhh yea Someguyhelping (talk) 14:19, 23 January 2023 (UTC)

    an idea for things relating to armour/vanity and dye

    ok so this may be a bit tedious to code and put into every page but the idea is for every page of dye/general dye page. make it to where you can do something to be able to change whats on the Armor stand so its not only just silver Armor. would help people come up with vanity combos.

    could also make it just a separate page tho. would still be tedious to code tho but it would people to find the right dye for what they want

    tl;dr add either a page with an intractable armor stand or every dye page with the dummy

    Someguyhelping (talk) 14:45, 23 January 2023 (UTC)
    That would take a lot of time as there would be the code for it to work, dye overlay sprites for lots of armor/accessories, and the animation for certain dyes, so I think it'll be too tedious to be added. Cytra (talk) 18:37, 23 January 2023 (UTC)

    Linking a Fandom wiki.

    Hello, I just want to know if there is a template or anything that is used for linking a Fandom wiki. I want to link my user page from a Fandom wiki, as that is my main editing wiki and therefore will be the wiki I will link everything to. If not I will just use a regular external link. GK1H (T/C) 00:28, 26 January 2023 (UTC)

    Not a general one, no. We do have a few interwikis, though, and Template:Iwlink to make linking to them a tad easier. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 20:06, 27 January 2023 (UTC)
    Thanks, I also found out how to use linking to the Minecraft Wiki to link to any other Fandom wiki, example link to my Community Central user page. GK1H (T/C)
